Accommodations & Meals
The Lodge has 25 beds in 11 very comfortable private cabins with in-suite baths, satellite television, WiFi internet, and laundry facilities. Complete linen and towels are provided for you.
Your meals are home cooked and hearty family style at round tables to encourage great story telling and conversation.
The main living area features a fully stocked bar, two flat screen TV’s, game table and numerous trophies.
The Ranch is situated on over 12,000 acres of rugged hills and valleys, which are covered by a variety of oak trees, junipers and mountain laurel. Cactus blooms red and gold in the spring among an assortment of wildflowers – a breathtaking landscape, perfect for challenging hunts. The Ranch offers a wonderful retreat for corporate groups, families or individuals looking for a first class, quiet, welcoming place to hunt and relax.
The ranch provides an ideal habitat for trophy-class whitetail and wild, exotic species to thrive and grow as they would in their indigenous environments. Many of the introduced, exotic species may no longer be hunted in their native lands, and they strive to foster strong, healthy herds. The dedication to each animal’s well being will be immediately evident upon observing them as they freely roam the hillsides and valleys. The Ranch’s management plan utilizes hunting as a means of conservation, and thus quotas and self-imposed limits are enforced. Recommended anything between .270 and .300 caliber for all species on the ranch.
Hunt on foot or in blinds, it is your decision.
You will hunt from blinds, safari style in vehicles or on foot depending on weather, animal movements and hunter preferences. Most of the guide team grew up in the region and possess an intimate knowledge of the animals’ behaviors and habits. They recommend rifle calibers between .270 and .300 for all species on the Ranch.
